Ohio won’t forget Donald Trump’s attacks on workers and broken promises

“Deploy the blimps” — At the rally to support Goodyear, Aug. 20

This Labor Day is like none other in recent memory — the parades have gone virtual, and the backyard picnics are for close family and friends only. Ohio workers are celebrating, but things are a bit more somber than in the past.

As Election Day grows closer, Donald Trump is doing everything he can to distract from his failure to contain the coronavirus threat and the economic devastation caused by the crisis. More than 190,000 Americans have died, and millions are out of work, but Trump is spending all weekend on the golf course.

Here in Ohio, we’ve seen up close how Trump has failed to deliver on his economic promises. Donald Trump is hoping we forget about his broken promises to the people of the Mahoning Valley (“Don’t move, don’t sell your house”). And he’s hoping Ohio workers forget about how he threatened an iconic Ohio company and its workers.

Ohioans won’t forget.

This weekend Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga called out Trump for attacking Goodyear:

Sen. Sherrod Brown highlighted the fact that Goodyear employs thousands of Ohioans in good-paying manufacturing jobs — while Trump chooses to manufacture his products overseas:

Vice President Joe Biden and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka also note that the attack on Goodyear is an attack on union workers:

Across the state, Ohioans are reminding their communities about Trump’s attack on Goodyear — and making the case that their community could be next.

In the Cincinnati Enquirer:

Time and time again, Donald Trump has broken his promises, and Ohio workers have paid the price for his reckless tweets and chaotic incompetence. It’s time to elect someone who cares about working people — it’s time to elect Joe Biden.
